I like 'em! They look similar to my SSRs :)
Nice wheels Bruce!
I definitely like this 10 spoke design. Just looks good on GDs.
thanks, guys!

given the limited availability of wheels in 18 x 11", i'm delighted that drew had these wheels scoped out already. theyre paid for and he's ordering them now. given the engine build timeline, i decided expedited shipping by air was an unnecessary 500. we're expecting them in 10-15 weeks by slow boat.

update:
the internal engine parts are ordered. now we wait. all of the custom plumbing has to wait until the engine is assembled.

meanwhile, i bought an electric jack and new winch for the trailer. to save my hands and thumbs, one of my buddies will be installing them for me.

Can't wait to see these wheels on the car. I feel like a kid who's waiting for that mail order cereal box baseball cap bowl. lol.

Have fun over there :cool:
We'll start our journey in about 20 hours!
If all goes acording to plan, the KLM Jumbo will touch down in San Francisco at noon :)

How long are you hanging out in Hawaii?

Short and precise, how much of a german is in you? :lol:

Frisco was expensive but fun! And the Trip up north on CA Highway 1 and CA and OR 101 was all worth it! Beautiful views, nice people, good food! Couldn't ask for more other than for more time.

wow Bruce. i thought i was the only one with bad luck. at least you've had some track time this year. as soon as i think i'm ready to go, the car breaks. this time i broke the EWG, something about exhaust leaking into the diaphragm. they replaced that under warranty (less than 6 mo old) and now the Meth pump mysteriously dies. at least that happened during testing, and not after i got the car back. new pump overnighted for Monday delivery. i miss my car.....

wow, it's been two months since i posted. i've been engaged with life.

update:
phil's got all the parts he needs except for the pistons. as soon as they show up he and steve are going to build a mock-up to work out the details. he's got a fabricator lined up for the header and other custom parts needed for the dry sump.

that's it. wish i had more to relate.
